Chateau  de  Ramezay

The  Chateau  de  Ramezay 


Claude  de  Eamezay,  the  11th  Governor  of  Montreal,  ap- 
pointed 1703,  was  born  in  France  1657,  came  to  Canada  in 
1685,  with  a  number  of  other  young  officers,  in  the  suite  of 
Governor  de  Denonville.  He  was  then  a  lieutenant  in  de 
Troye's  company  of  Marine  troops,  which  later  took  part 
in  the  expedition  to  Hudson's  Bay.  His  promotion  was  rapid, 
being:  captain  in  1687,  later  colonel,  then  commandant  of 
troops  and  finally  Governor. 

In  1687  he  took  part  in  the  expedition  against  the  Iro- 
quois and  in  1690,  when  Phipps  appeared  before  Quebec,  he 
brought  over  800  men  from  Montreal  for  the  defence  of  the 
former  town. 

History  tells  of  the  spirited  defence  made  by  Frontenae 
and  his  gallant  officers,  the  latter,  no  doubt,  being  encouraged 
by  the  bright  smiles  of  some  of  Quebec's  fair  daughters  who, 
it  seems,  lost  no  time  in  rewarding  their  brave  defenders  with 
their  heart  and  hand.  Scarcely  had  the  last  of  Phipps'  fleet 
disappeared  around  Point  Levi,  than  de  Ramezay  led  to  the 
altar  Melle  Marie-Charlotte  Denys,  a  daughter  of  Denys  de  la 
Eonde,  one  of  the  oldest  and  wealthiest  families  of  Canada. 
His  companion  in  arms,  de  Vaudreuil,  at  the  same  time  mar- 
ried Louise,  daughter  of  Pierre  de  Joybert  de  Soulanges. 
Could  they  have  seen  into  the  future  their  happiness  would 
have  been  clouded  by  sorrow,  for  it  was  destined  that  a  son  of 
de  Ramezay  should  be  the  one  to  open  the  gates  of  Quebec  to 
the  English  in  1759,  and  a  son  of  de  Vaudreuil  should  do  like- 
wise, at  Montreal,  the  following  year. 

De  Ramezay  was  one  of  the  most  prominent  men  of  his 
time,  occupying  an  official  position  in  Canada  for  a  term 
exceeding  forty  years.  He  was  Seigneur  de  la  Gesse,  de  Mon- 
tigny,  et  Boisfleurent  in  France,  and  in  Canada  was  Seigneur 
de  Monnoir  and  de  Ramezay,  Knight  of  the  Military  Order  of 
St.  Louis,  Governor  of  Montreal,  and  Commandant  of  all  the 
militia  in  the  country,  and  was  administrator  of  the  Governor- 
Generalship  during  the  two  years '  absence  of  de  Vaudreuil  in 

The  Chateau  was  built  in  1705.  The  neighborhood  was 
then  the  fashionable  part  of  the  town,  and  was  occupied  by 


the  Baron  de  Longueuil,  the  Contrecoeurs,  d'Eschambaults, 
d 'Aillebousts  and  Madame  de  Portneiif,  the  widow  of  Baron 
Becancourt.  Situated  on  a  hill,  and  opposite  to  the  magnifi- 
cent garden  of  the  Jesuits,  this  plain  unembellished  house  had 
an  open  view  to  the  river  front. 

Under  de  Eamezay's  regime,  1703  to  1724,  this  venerable 
edifice  was  the  hall  of  entertainment  of  the  illustrious  of  the 
country.  The  many  expeditions  to  the  distant  fur  fields,  the 
voyages  of  discovery  of  new  land*;,  the  councils  of  war,  the 
military  expeditions,  the  conferences  with  the  Indians,  the 
annual  fairs  and  fur  trading  market,  attracted  to  the  shores  of 
Montreal,  not  only  the  Governor  General,  the  Intendant,  and 
their  suites,  but  a  considerable  number  of  the  most  important 
people  of  the  country,  including  all  classes  of  society.  To  one 
and  all  the  portals  of  this  hospitable  mansion  were  ever  open. 
To  the  lowly  Indian  and  his  squaw,  and  to  the  exalted  noble- 
man and  his  consort,  the  noble  and  beneficent  Ramezay  and 
his  family  showed  equal  attention.  Fearless  to  the  Indian  or 
enemy,  his  bravery  and  charity  were  equally  exemplified  in 
the  personal  care  and  attention  he  and  his  family  gave  to  the 
suffering  citizens  of  Montreal  during  the  pest  which  devastat- 
ed the  town  in  1721. 

De  Ramezay  died  in  1724,  and  his  family  sold  the  Chateau 
to  the  Compagnie  des  Indes  in  1745.  The  latter  retained  pos- 
session until  the  cession,  in  1763,  when  it  was  bought  by  Wm. 
Grant,  who,  in  turn,  disposed  of  it  to  the  English  Government 
for  the  sum  of  two  thousand  guineas.  It  thus  became  again 
the  residence  of  the  Governors,  and  remained  such  up  to  1849. 

In  1775-6,  the  Chateau  was  the  Headquarters  for  the  Con- 
tinental Army  under  Montgomery,  and  in  the  spring  of  1776, 
there  came  Benjamin  Franklin,  Carroll  of  Carrollton,  and 
Samuel  Chase,  envoys  sent  by  Congress  to  influence  the 
French  Canadians  to  join  the  colonies  in  the  revolt  against 
British  rule.  Then  came  Benedict  Arnold,  who  occupied  the 
Chateau  for  several  weeks. 

Lord  Metcalfe  was  the  last  resident  governor,  but  for  some 
years  after  his  establishment  in  a  new  government  house  the 
Chateau  was  used  for  departmental  offices.  When  the  govern- 
ment was  withdrawn  from  Montreal,  the  Chateau  served  sev- 
eral purposes.  For  some  years  the  courts  were  held  here,  and 
later  the  Normal  School. 

In  1894  the  Chateau  was  sold  by  the  Provincial  Govern- 
ment and  purchased  by  the  Corporation  of  the  City  of  Mont- 
real, and  in  1895  the  Numismatic  and  Antiquarian  Society 
obtained  the  building  for  the  purpose  of  founding  an  His- 
torical Portrait  Gallery  and  Museum. 

The  Numismatic  and  Antiquarian 
Society  of  Montreal 

In  the  month  of  December,  1862,  several  gentlemen  of 
^lontreal,  desirous  of  cultivating  the  study  of  Numismatics, 
some  of  whom  had  been  meeting  informally  for  a  couple  of 
years  at  the  house  of  Mr.  James  Ferrier,  judging  the  forma- 
tion of  a  properly  organized  association  as  the  most  efficacious 
means  of  attaining  that  end,  formed  ' '  The  Numismatic  Society 
of  Montreal. ' '  The  seal  of  this  society  was  the  obverse  of  the 
Canadian  bronze  cent,  with  an  outer  circle  inscribed  ' '  Societe 
Numismatique  de  Montreal.     Fondee  1862." 

In  January,  1866,  the  name  of  the  society  was  changed  to 
that  of  the  "Numismatic  and  Antiquarian  Society  of  Mont- 
real, ' '  and  a  new  seal  was  adopted,  viz. :  a  round  shield  quar- 
tered by  a  tomahawk,  and  calumet,  bearing  an  antique  lamp, 
an  Athenian  coin  with  the  head  of  Minerva,  a  Canadian  cent 
vfith  head  of  Victoria,  and  a  Beaver ;  the  shield  encircled  with 
a  garter  bearing  the  words :  ''  Numismaticae  et  Archeologicae 
Marianopolitanae  Societatis  Sigillum." 

In  1870  the  Society  was  incorporated  by  Act  of  Legis- 
lature of  Quebec.  The  charter  members  were  Stanley  Clark 
Bagg,  James  Ferrier,  Thomas  D.  King,  William  Blackburn, 
Daniel  Rose,  Henry  Mott,  Dr.  T.  Sterry  Hunt,  A.  J.  Boucher, 
Solomon  David,  John  Lawrence,  Robert  W.  McLachlan, 
Gerald  E.  Hart,  Alfred  Sandham,  J.  L.  Bronsdon,  L.  A. 
Huguet  Latour,  William  Kingsford,  R.  J.  Wickstead,  and 
Henry  Leggatt. 

In  July,  1872,  the  Society  began  the  publication  of  ' '  The 
Canadian  Antiquarian  and  Numismatic  Journal,"  but  owing 
to  uncontrollable  circumstances  the  publication  was  suspended 
from  time  to  time.  Up  to  the  present  time  three  series,  mak- 
ing a  total  of  twenty  volumes,  have  been  published.  It  was 
this  Society,  acting  upon  the  projects  of  individual  members 
of  it,  that  first  suggested  the  project  of  celebrating  the 
250th  anniversary  of  the  founding  of  Montreal,  and  proposed 
three  things  in  order  to  shed  more  lustre  on  so  noteworthy  an 
event.  First,  the  erecting  of  a  monument  to  the  memory  of 
Chomedy  de  Maisonneuve,  the  founder  of  our  city;  second, 
the  saving  of  the  Chateau  de  Ramezay  from  the  destruction 
with  which  it  was  threatened;  third,  an  historical  exhibition 
by  which  the  public  might  be  enlightened  regarding  the  rare 
and  precious  things  still  to  be  found  amongst  us  and  which 
the  Society  is  endeavoring  to  prevent  being  lost  to  the  country 
for  ever. 


The  Society  succeeded  in  bringing  all  three  of  these 
projects  to  a  successful  issue,  and  the  result  of  its  labors  in  the 
Chateau  may  be  read  in  the  pages  of  this  catalogue. 

The  President  of  the  Society — His  Honor  Louis  Wilfrid 
Sicotte,  is  descended  from  6ne  of  the  oldest  families  in  the 
Province  of  Quebec,  his  ancestors  being  amongst  the  founders 
of  the  City  of  Montreal 

Was  born  at  Boucherville,  Que.,  Dec.  10th,  1838.  Edu- 
cated at  the  College  of  St.  Hyacinthe,  and  was  called  to  the 
Bar,  Oct.  1,  1860. 

In  his  early  days  he  was  associated  with  the  late  Sir  J.  A. 
Chapleau,  the  Honorable  Judge  Mousseau  and  others,  in  con- 
ducting '^Le  Colonisateur "  newspaper.  He  was  appointed 
clerk  of  the  Crown  and  of  the  Peace,  1882,  and  Judge  of  Ses- 
sions of  the  Peace,  1897.  For  many  years  a  member  of  the 
Numismatic  and  Antiquarian  Society,  in  which  he  has  always 
taken  great  interest,  and  has  contributed  largely  to  the  in- 
crease of  its  collection. 

At  the  death  of  the  lamented  Hon.  Judge  Baby,  he  was 
unanimously  appointed  President.

whelmingly defeated  3,500  United  States  troops  under 
General  Hampton  at  Chateauguay.  Believing  them- 
selves surrounded  by  a  force  far  superior  in  numbers, 
the  invaders  became  paralyzed  with  fear,  and  fled  in 
disorder  from  an  enemy  whom  they  could  not  see,  and 
who  might  close  upon  them  at  any  moment.  In  this 
way,  Canadian  pluck  and  strategy  won  a  famous  vic- 
tory which  saved  the  Province  of  Lower  Canada  at  a 
most  critical  moment  of  the  war.
